MC2 Post 1998 Everyone Needs a Little Shield, these days






Shield: NVIDIA's $200 gaming-focused Android TV set-top box



Another year, another new Shield device from NVIDIA. What's Shield? It's the hardware line from NVIDIA that spans a bizarre handheld game console, a powerful gaming tablet, and now a $200, Android TV-powered set-top box. NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang unveiled the Android TV-powered set-top box this evening during a GDC 2015 press conference, which the company referred to as a combination "revolutionary TV", "gaming console" and "supercomputer." Head below for all the specs as we learn them live from NVIDIA.

NVIDIA's calling Shield the "world's first 4K Android TV" -- it's able to both stream and locally run 4K content to your fawncy 4K television. How does it do that? It uses a bleeding edge X1 chip -- the most powerful mobile processor NVIDIA's made to date.
